REGISTERING A RECREATIONAL / MIDDLE SCHOOL TEAM FOR A TOURNAMENT
Occasionally we have a Recreational or Middle School group that wants to put a team together to play in a State sanctioned tournament. Since the players are usually from several teams and the team is not registered with CSA as a Competitive or Intermediate team, there are some special requirements that must be met to put the team together in time for them to be registered for a given tournament. Below is a list of recommended deadlines which will enable the Pueblo Rangers office to have the time to complete the necessary steps for the team to register and play in the tournament.
A team must register according to the oldest player on the team. For instance if a team has 13 U-12 players and one U-13 player, they must register as a U-13 team for the tournament. This applies to Middle School teams as well .
At least two months prior to the tournament registration deadline,
a team should have a team meeting with all of the parents and players on the team to discuss the cost for each player, the commitment required and the deadline dates listed below.
At least One month prior to the tournament deadline,
All players must be registered with the Pueblo Rangers. Once all of the players are registered and you have notified the Rangers Office and sent us a list of the players, the Pueblo Rangers will upload the player information to GotSoccer. When this happens the parent will receive and email with the, user name and login, for the players account. When the parent receives this information, it will be their responsibility to log in to the player’s account and upload a picture of the player and upload a copy of the player’s birth certificate.
All coaches must be registered with the Pueblo Rangers, have submitted the online background check. Once this is done, notify the Rangers Office so that we can upload the coaches information to GotSoccer, they will receive the user name and password for their coaches acct. They will need to log in to their account and upload their picture. Once their team has been created on GotSoccer, the coach will receive the team user name and password. This will be the user name and password that they will use to register the team for the tournament.
Prior to the tournament deadline,
Make certain that you have checked the tournament web site and familiarized yourself with the tournament rules, fees, deadlines and processes. When in doubt, contact the tournament director for additional questions.
